Research: BYOD, Wearables and IoT
December 22, 2015
Devices are the name of the game when it comes to business operations and productivity. The “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) movement – whereby personal employee-owned devices are being brought into the office and used for business purposes -- has been in full swing for some time, with a majority of companies using BYOD.
BYOD can offer an array of potential benefits for businesses and workers alike, including lowered equipment/service plan costs and reduced device support for businesses as well as equipment choice, work-life flexibility and familiar interfaces for users. The BYOD movement has represented a shift towards consumerization in the workplace and the blend of business/personal technology via a “whatever works best to get the job done” mindset.
New concepts like wearable devices and IoT have the potential to further influence and change the BYOD trend by diversifying it and making it more complex. This can add value to business operations, but can also detract from them if not carefully managed.
Tech Pro Research surveyed 206 professionals around the globe to find out how BYOD, wearables and IoT is impacting their organization. The results were compared to previous surveys on the topic dating back to 2013. Find out the results and download our full report, BYOD, Wearables and IoT: Strategies, Security, Satisfaction.
